Say What!!!!!! Lopes puts the whoop down!
The Jim Beam Air Downhill took over the Whistler Mountain Bike Park today with over 300 competitors racing in the one-run format on the famed A-Line course. Brian Lopes of Laguna Beach, CA was the fastest competitor for the third straight year finishing with a time of 4:22.10 - 1.32 seconds faster than the rest of the field.
The Jim Beam Air Downhill runs the length of A-Line over the GLC Drops into the village.
With nearly 100 jumps on-course, A-Line is the most celebrated and well-known downhill trail in mountain biking.
This post is for all the Carbon doubters!! Not only did Lopes win the Air DH he won it on an Full carbon Ibis Mojo!!!!! Hopefully this will inspire and encourage riders to lay aside there fears and worries about the durability of the Full carbon Ibis Mojo. It continues to impress us here at Wrench Science time and time again. If you have any questions about the Mojo feel free to call Avi Byer at toll free 1-800-497-3624 ext 210.
